Sometimes the best aesthetic treatment is a simple injection procedure to smooth out wrinkles and folds. In certain cases wrinkles don’t add character to your face but make you feel older than you feel on the inside. With Restylane fillers and Skinboosters, your looks can be quickly enhanced with long-lasting results.
Whatever your needs are, from smoothing nose to mouth lines or improving the appearance of frown lines - there’s a Restylane solution that gives the best possible results.
WHAT ARE WRINKLES?
As we get older, facial muscles begin to slacken and your skin becomes less elastic. This creates fine lines, moderate lines or deeper folds in the skin that we call wrinkles. They are found where your facial muscles move and you can get frown lines, forehead lines and squint lines at the corners of your eyes, known as crow's feet. Deeper folds may appear between your nose and mouth known as nasolabial folds. These wrinkles are a result of lost facial volume that occurs as we age.
WHAT CAUSES WRINKLES?
Wrinkles are part of the natural ageing process. Genetics play an important part, however, environmental factors, such as ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun and smoking, can dry your skin and make wrinkles appear at a younger age. An unhealthy diet may also cause wrinkles to appear sooner.
Wrinkles usually appear on areas of your skin that are most exposed to the sun, such as your face, neck, backs of your hands and upper arms. This is because UV radiation from the sun damages the DNA in your skin cells, which causes your skin to age. Whilst some sunlight is important because your skin uses it to produce vitamin D, too much sun is harmful and people who spend a lot of time in the sun, particularly without protecting their skin with sunscreen, may develop fine lines and wrinkles at an earlier age.
Cigarette smoke affects your skin in several ways. It dries your skin out and it constricts your blood vessels. This reduces the supply of oxygen and vital nutrients to your skin. Research suggests that smoking may also cause an increase in the production of an enzyme that breaks down collagen – the part of your skin that keeps it looking firm. As a result, people who smoke are more likely to have facial wrinkles at a younger age. Puckering up your lips when you smoke also causes lines to form around your mouth (known as smoker's lines) and eyes.
HYALURONIC ACID IN THE SKIN
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is found in the skin and is a naturally occuring substance that helps to keep the skin looking young, wrinkle free and full. As we age our body will naturally produce less HA which is what causes the skin to look older and when you will see depressions in the skin, especially the face. Restylane products are designed to help replace some of the lost HA to smooth wrinkles and hollows.
WRINKLE TREATMENTS WITH RESTYLANE
Fortunately, help is at hand with Restylane filler and Skinboosters treatments. By softly replacing lost hyaluronic acid in the skin, Restylane fillers can help smooth away wrinkles, whilst Restylane Skinboosters help revitalise and hydrate the skin to counter the effects of fine lines.
